What’s New

Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery

Paper Play: Kindergarten to Contemporary Art
Through Oct 29

Explore the innovative use of paper by contemporary artists who use this humble material in simple ways—folding, weaving, cutting, and stacking—to make extraordinary works of art. Then, families can discover the possibilities of paper by creating a mysterious scene, a folded sculpture, and a colorful weaving!

Artists in this exhibition include Richard Sweeney, Wu Jian’an, Michelle Grabner, Tara Donovan, Andrea Dezsö, and an installation by Fred Liang in the Museum’s East End.

The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery is open during regular Museum Hours.
